Lynne Plowman “The Beachcomber” Album Release

I’ve read somewhere: on Chesil Beach,
the sea sorts pebbles, each from each,
from large to small,
and smooths them all (…)

“Fred to Samantha”, from Songs of the Sea Dreamer by Russell Hoban

We at Composers Edition are delighted to share the news of the release of Lynne Plowman’s new album The Beachcomber on the Prima Facie label, Friday 25th September.

Lynne Plowman with Michael Bennett and Sandrine Chatron (tenor and harp)

Two works – A Field Guide to Pebbles (five short pieces for percussion duo) and Songs of the Sea Dreamer (a song-cycle for tenor and harp – settings of four poems by Russell Hoban) – form the framework of this album. The songs are intertwined with short instrumental solos and duos, telling a story of love, loneliness and the sea.

The works of this album spans twenty years of Lynne Plowman’s music. Plowman comments:

Curating this album has brought together themes and sound-worlds in my music that perhaps I hadn’t connected before.
